How to Do Preventive Maintenance on the OT-2 Pipetting Robot



Conducting routine maintenance can extend the life of your liquid handling equipment and is something you can actually do by yourself with Opentrons equipment!


During a preventive maintenance check, you will review the operation of your OT-2, pipettes, and modules to ensure they’re functioning optimally.


In this webinar, we’ll share the steps you should include in a routine maintenance check that ensure you clean, monitor, repair, and replace components that show signs of wear or potential failure. We’ll also discuss how often to perform maintenance. No engineering experience is required: anyone can run a maintenance operation on the OT-2.

This 30-minute webinar provides useful tips on:

  • How to conduct preventive maintenance on Opentrons equipment—yourself
  • How frequently you should calibrate to minimize downtime
  • What types of maintenance should NOT be done on the OT-2
  • Where to find Opentrons’ preventive maintenance documentation
